This chapter completes the valuation, which follows a straightforward calculation of the discounted present value of the future sustainability cashflows. It further discusses challenges and limitations, particularly regarding the feasibility of institutional support and the extended scope of work of a valuer. It emphasizes the need for valuing small and independent businesses. It should be noted that the actual implementation will require a certain degree of empirical adaption, while sustainability valuation would serve as a basis for valuation for virtually all businesses.
